Symantec USB block issue

I have a question about Symantec Endpoint Protection.  We are trying to block USB access but are running into an issue with one of our devices.  From what I can tell, things like imaging devices are not supposed to be blocked.

However, many of our stations have ID scanners that are being blocked.  When I look in the device manager the ID scanners do show up as imaging devices.  

I'm not seeing how you white list a device.  

Thanks in advance for any help.

Uncheck "Enable Port Scan Detection"

Sorry, I should have noted that this is for the cloud version.  I don't see the options that you wrote.

Those were for the Desktop version. Look in the  options settings to see if anything like it in the cloud version

No luck on this one.  It looks like the ID scanners that we use are a little older and don't have the necessary flags set to Identify themselves as anything other than a storage device.  I'm talking with the vendor now but I don't think a solution is possible.  So, we will probably replace them with newer ones that will Id themselves correctly.

Good idea to replace them if you can - make sure they are compatible with your setup.
